One of the best ways to introduce students to how the insurance industry works is to bring them to your office. Many schools offer job shadows or career days where students take field trips to visit the professional world. Students can shadow different professionals in your organization, tour your facility and get a real feel for the day in the life of an insurance professional.
InVEST can help with step-by-step guides that show you how to start an internship program or plan a job shadow day at your agency or company. The internship guide includes sample forms and explains expected responsibilities of students, teachers and your staff.
The job shadow guide includes a planning calendar, invitation to the teacher student roster and job shadowing choices along with a host position activity summary. Necessary release forms, like a consent form, medical authorization and media release are also included.
